Joie De Vivre: Cocoa Beach

A couple of weekends ago, I was lucky enough to tag along on my husbands work trip to beautiful Cocoa Beach, Florida.  We both needed a nice break to soak up some warm sun and be by the ocean, so we packed up and headed down there to spend a nice long weekend together before he had to work. 

Our hotel overlooked the Cocoa Beach Pier and we could walk to most of the places that we wanted to go, but had to drive about 12 miles down the coast to find a dog friendly beach.  It was a nice drive with lots to see and we made a point to go down there for a couple hours almost every day.  Jax was pretty  petrified of the ocean, but he enjoyed running around on the beach and meeting other dogs.  It was also a great spot to watch the surfers and fisherman.  

We spent a couple of nights hanging out on the Cocoa Beach Pier and actually got to see a rocket launch from near by Cape Canaveral on our last night. Other highlights of the trip were eating at Florida's Fresh Grill,  Sandbar Sports Grill (famous for their fish tacos and rightfully so!),  and shopping at the world's largest Ron Jon Surf Shop.  A good time was had by all, because let's face it - life is just better at the beach.  Hope you have a happy Friday and that wherever you are, you are keeping warm.  

Happiness is the sand between your toes and also on your nose ..
